JR going 3-13 sure didn't help in Game 1. It looked like a lot of them were bad misses and led to Warrior fast breaks, but I don't have stats for that.

The sciences are really weird about churning employees. Hiring postdocs for 2-3 year terms and then just grinding the life out of them is routine. I seriously doubt it's an optimal scenario, since it usually takes a year or so to become productive then you bust ass for another year or two to get as much done as possible then disappear.

I think Shaq would eat anyone who tried to get him to shoot 3s. I just looked it up, he was 1/22 on 3pt attempts.
Assuming you're talking about any of the serious Johnnie Walker labels (Blue, Gold, Black) and not the cheap stuff, they're objectively well done for what they are.
